Also, maybe the copyright text should be changed? Things have changed since that time...

@XhmikosR Not sure I can, can I? Still copyrighted to Tom and can't be changed, unless I don't know my law properly. @benbalter may know more.

I don't know this lawyer stuff either. But I don't think the current text is right. I mean, now Jekyll has a lot more contributors. Sure, it might have started as a one person copyright, but you know.

I think the copyright stands with the original copyrighter, even with lots of contributors. But, like I said, just conjecture based on past info policy studies at school.

Well, if that's right, shouldn't the copyright year stay fixed?

Not sure... Let's leave it for now until someone like Ben can give us a definitive answer. Thanks for the PR!

Every contributor retains the copyright to their contributions (but license it to the world). Technically the notice isn't necessary since the Byrne convention, but lawyers are slow to change and footers look naked without it.

Technically should be Copyright [year of first publication] - [This year] assuming it's published each year.

As for ownership, it's should be Copyright Year(s) Jekyll Contributors or something similar, although for sake of Tom being the BDFL, I'd do Mojombo, Jekyll Contributors.

Oh just realized we're talking content, not code. All that above was mostly code. I'd make the website content CC0 or something similar, but that's a different discussion.

@benbalter: yeah I was talking about the copyright text of the website.
